Somerset Contract Extension For Isle Of Wight Cricketer

(C) Somerset County Cricket Club

Isle of Wight cricketer, Adam Hose, has signed a one year contract extension with Somerset.

The 23 year old, who has starred for Somerset first XI, will remain at the club until at least the end of the 2017 season.

Adam grew up on the Isle of Wight, playing his youth cricket on the Island for Ventnor.

He initially signed for Somerset in 2015 on a 14-month contract.

Adam told Somerset CCC website:

“I am delighted to extent my contract with Somerset. It’s a very exciting club to be around at the moment and it gives me another opportunity to keep knocking on the door of regular first team cricket.

“Looking ahead, my goals for 2017 are pretty simple. Earn a regular spot within the top order, and consistently contribute towards winning games of cricket for Somerset. I’d love to play all formats but all of our batters had a top class season, so staying patient and grabbing the opportunity when it comes is key.

“Playing for Somerset is a very special privilege. The support we get, not only for our home games, but around the country is something very unique. The supporters take great pride in calling themselves Somerset fans and I know the players feel no different. As a squad there is a huge hunger for success growing throughout the changing room and I know we can’t wait to get started come March 1st.”
